Irony, sweet irony.


As today’s Toronto Sun editorial confirms, the facts don’t seem to have anything to do with reality.

Yes, Sandy ... you're just the person who should be lecturing the rest of us on the logical disconnect between reality and fantasy.

Just when you think they couldn't possibly get any less self-aware ... they get less self-aware.

I can't be bothered with that blithering Harrisite holdover anymore. Like every other right wing douche bag, the analysis of any situation starts from a foundation of moral condemnation and it's just too dreary.

Anyone who's still using "political correctness" as a framework within which to examine complex problems related to socialisation needs to have her PhD revoked.

You're out of your league Sandy. Go back to teaching kindergartners phonics.

She and Sun talk about Facts,... yet I find absolutely no facts in her article or the one print in the Sun. It seems they state a "Fact" and we are left to assume that they proof to back that fact up, or that they have evidence to justify the facts that they claim,...

Yup the facts don't add up, like the assumption that a majority of youth violence is caused by "Blacks", she doesn't back it up with reliable stats or studies, she just throws it out there and I guess we expect to assume that she is correct,...

There have always been families who were poor and their children were not violent.

Heh, not only that, but have always been families that were filthy rich and their children have killed mom and dad, or raped kids.

For instance:
Page Contents: Teenage Violence / The Nature of Adolescence / Adolescent Problems (Failed Communication, Lack of “Normality,” Wealth) / Denial and Lies: from Dogs to Teenage Pregnancy / Clinical Diagnoses / The Issue of Violent Entertainment / Should We Blame Guns?
- - - - - -
Incidents of school violence involving teenagers in the U.S. have caused many persons to start asking why these things are happening. “What causes teenage violence?” they ask. “How could kids from such normal families do such things? The parents were well off, they lived in nice houses, they had everything.”

Aw, shite. Wait, wait, all is not lost - there is a demographic that is more prone to suggest violence and to stereotype and to publish contact info:
For these girls, did the false sense of power they felt on the Internet carry over into their everday lives? Is that what gave them the courage to carry out this senseless act of violence? Or have kids always been this violent toward each other, but now they just have the technology to display it?

Yes I preview from now on. The last paragraph is a quote from another page...

Sorry, I was poor, fair to middlin', and at times, well off. I sometimes get screwed up and think facts have something to do with reality.

Youth violence tied to racism, report says

politically correct
adj. Abbr. PC

1. Of, relating to, or supporting broad social, political, and educational change, especially to redress historical injustices in matters such as race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.

2. Being or perceived as being overconcerned with such change, often to the exclusion of other matters.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, perceived being a key word.

(Sorry, I had a bad day listening to (fundamentalist) christians discuss homosexuality and if it should be forgiven. The Politically correct Pentacostals say: it is absolutely wrong, but okay. I said: ???)

As I noted at Sandy's blog, most people who complain about political correctness are really complaining that it's not their type of political correctness.

Wasn't that a waste of time, eh, RH? She accused you of being an ignorant American based on whatever IP address she saw for you.

Sandy Crux is Anti-American!

...what a hag.

Just out of curiosity, is there ever a post that isn't a "good post" by Sandy or Joanne when commenting on each others' sites? Their inane backslapping is really annoying.

Good comment Red!
